    Well, it is interesting, but not useful as a clock unless you live on a planet where the days are 10 or 20 hours long. On Earth, its just a novelty.
    Thanks,

    If we'd been born with 8 fingers on each hand, we'd had a better
    number system for metric.
    I doubt anyone would want to change all of the physical constants
    to make this new second practical.
    Such is life.
